WHY I BECAME A THERAPIST

As a therapist, I love to see my clients’ lives changed and transformed as they gain positivity, self-confidence, and inner strength. Whether it’s from a childhood trauma, a big life change, or a recent loss, every person goes through difficulties. My job is to be a support system to guide you through your healing process. 

I BECAME A THERAPIST TO HELP OTHERS COPE WITH LIFE’S CHALLENGES AND SUPPORT THEM AS THEY FIND THEIR PATH TO HEALING.

therapy is a unique journey for everyone THAT provides a safe space to explore goals, express emotions, heal from past experiences, and gain strength.

Together we will work through WHATEVER problems ARE HOLDING YOU BACK and form solutions to overcome obstacles you might be facing.

I believe that everyone has the capacity to thrive, but people can sometimes get stuck on their path due to past life experiences. When we work together, we will not only focus on what you are struggling with – we will also work to identify your strengths and unique talents, and explore how they can help you work through life’s challenges. We will work to improve your coping skills, increase your self-awareness, and build your self-confidence.

WHEN I WORK WITH CLIENTS,

I focusing on developing a strong and trusting therapeutic relationship with my clients. As a therapist, I value helping my clients feel heard and understood during the therapeutic process.

I also integrate Brene Brown’s powerful research of vulnerability, courage, shame, and empathy in my work with clients, utilizing techniques and strategies to help individuals integrate it into their personal and professional lives.

WHO I WORK WITH

I work with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, PTSD/trauma, and relationship loss. I also enjoy working with teens and young adults who are dealing with interpersonal issues and life transitions.

I have experience working with people in all phases of life, including younger teens, emerging adults, adults in mid-life, and older adults.

WHAT IF I DON'T WANT TO CHANGE SOME THINGS?

That is not a problem! If there is something that you are uncomfortable discussing, feel free to tell me at any moment and we can move on to a different issue. If there is any point that you want to circle around to this hard topic, and we can do so throughout our therapy sessions.
